Two Weird stuff stars called the series after completing work on season four.
Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp have been on the Netflix show since the first season and during the promotion of the latest episodes, they spoke candidly about their thoughts on deaths in the series.
Season four concluded with two final episodes, which were released on Friday (July 1), and those who had streamed them were eager to find out which characters died. However, each of the original crew of heroes made it out alive.
This led to some criticism of showrunners, the Duffer brothers, with many arguing that the show’s stakes would be higher if there were more casualties; the majority of the characters that get killed are the ones that were introduced at the beginning of the season.
In the resurfaced clip, first posted on May 23, Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, told TheWrap: “They have to kill some people. It’s so big.”
Brown waded in and added: “I know. It’s way too big. Last night we couldn’t even take one group photo because there were 50 of us. I was like, ‘You have to start killing people.’”
Schnapp said, “They only need one massacre scene.”
Brown continued: “That’s what I’m saying. The Duffer brothers are two sensitive Sallies who don’t want to kill anyone. we have to be Game of Thrones† We must have the mentality of Game of Thrones†
She then demanded that the creators “kill me”, adding: “They tried to kill David [Harbour, Hopper] and they brought him back. It’s ridiculous.”
While some theorized that the pair misled fans and that the final season would feature some significant deaths, Schnapp and Brown’s complaint is now believed to be genuine.

The last two episodes of season four kill Dr Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine), who returned after initially thought to have died in season one, and newcomer Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn).
Shortly after his death scene was watched, many highlighted a tragic detail surrounding the moment.
Elsewhere, fans were convinced that the show had killed Max (Sadie Sink) until the episode revealed that she had actually survived the events.
